I glued that treasure onto a wooden box that I still keep on my dresser as a reminder.
“Real Love” is different, right?
Let’s call it fuller, but it can be infused with the same delicious flavor of a hand cut, homemade paper heart handed to you, framed by a smile that glows with magic and adoration.
This is how my experience of romantic Love began. And from there, it seemed like an endless fountain available wherever I went.
Don’t get me wrong. My life had challenges like all lives and the best stories do — moving around, starting over, meeting new people, never really having any roots.
But the one thing that seemed to happen everywhere I went was Love.
In the beginning, I had a clear sense of my feminine energy, a knowing that I was capable of owning my body and self and creating what I wanted.
I knew that I could call in Love and create whatever kind of relationship I wanted. I understood I was the chooser and the designer of my experience, and Love was easily accessible.
But as I got older and received more information about how things “should” be and what “most” people experience, confusion set in.
Ever have the experience where you’ve been living a possibility, and then someone tells you that you’re a fool because what you’re talking about is actually not possible?
Super confusing, right?
My clarity fogged up, and that’s when I learned heartbreak and the torment of Love.
What had changed?
Why did it feel hard and even impossible now when it used to be so easy?
Me, I had changed.
When I took the time and thought about it, I understood with crystal clarity what had happened … what was different from the days when Love came to me in beautiful experiences, and then when Love hurt me.
The difference was in how I approached the possibility of Love and relationship. The difference was in how I saw myself and the stories and meaning I gave to my experiences with others.
I had relinquished my position as the chooser and the designer of my experience … the position from which Love was easily accessible.
So for a while, I made all the mistakes … I mean ALL the relationship mistakes.
I now know I was modeling what I had seen happening in relationships all around me since childhood.
Boom! The lights came on!
It was like realizing I was in the midst of an epidemic. I knew there had to be a real cure.
This was pure crazy!
The pieces that make up the clear picture came to me … little by little.
For a time, I thought I’d never find that special person and I didn’t think I’d be able to attract him if I did. I wondered if my relationship dream was simply a fantasy that I should give up for a more pragmatic goal.
After all, I had never actually seen proof of it in the world around me — although I did catch glimpses of something that continued to fan my flames of hope in the possibility.
But step by step, I moved toward that picture of possibility. I got strategic about my intentions and my awareness and my choices. I took bold action keeping risk low and focusing on my target of a companionship for the ages.
And my strategy and focus delivered.
I am enjoying my most successful and fulfilling relationship ever.
